    Default Warwickshire team help discover new spider species

    A team in Warwickshire have helped to discover a new species of spider.

    Professor Richard Pearce, an arachnologist and research scientist based at WCGs Moreton Morrell College, has been working with renowned naturalist Javed Ahmed and a team of field researchers in India on a wider research project exploring spider biodiversity in the region.

    They found a spider in India that has previously gone unrecorded but scientists believe the tiny spider from the genus Afraflacilla is more likely to benefit humans than harm them.
